A group of Apple workers calling themselves #AppleToo said it has collected almost 500 stories from current and former Apple employees about workplace issues including harassment, discrimination and bullying. A majority of those sharing the stories have also asked the group for guidance on sharing them with external organizations and the press.
The most common thread in the stories is "being ignored by HR," according to information shared by the Apple Workers Twitter account. The group plans to begin sharing some employees' stories publicly on Monday, after it has finished providing guidance on how to report the stories to external labor organizations like the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing and the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
The #AppleToo group began collecting stories last week, inspired in part by several current and former Apple employees who had come forward with stories about harassment, discrimination and other issues with internal Apple policies.
